What is Securities Fraud?
Securities fraud is a broad classification for any acts that entice, coerce, or induce investors to make financial decisions based on intentionally misleading or fraudulent information. This can involve anything from falsifying financial information, providing potential investors with false insider information (pump and dump), microcap fraud, and other such acts. The penalties for these charges range depending on the act performed and the impact of the act on the investors.
